Let’s be real: when you’re looking to update your kitchen or any room in your house, the dollar store probably isn’t going to be the first store on your list to hit. While there are a fabulous variety of home goods stores in Toronto and online, it’s important for you to know that Dollarama should not be overlooked. Of course it depends on what you’re looking to buy because there are kitchen items that you should never cheap out on, like knives, and others that you should be saving on.
For me, I was looking to update my kitchen with expensive-looking serving bowls, accents, and items that’ll help me keep my kitchen looking as pristine as possible so I headed on into my nearest Dollarama to get started.
I first set out to see if there were any unique looking kitchen utensils at Dollarama. Unfortunately not, but what I did find was a super cute metal canister that would be great to store my existing utensils in.
I’m so happy the canister is white because my kitchen colours are white and grey, so it fit right in.
To be honest, I’m not sure why I didn’t have one of these canisters before because having all my utensils, that I use regularly, right by the stove is majorly convenient.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that Dollarama has a lot of quality ceramic items that all look much more expensive than they were.
During my shopping trip to Dollarama, picked up two different ceramic serving bowls, as well as a ceramic pie plate that will definitely come in handy with all of the holiday cooking and baking I have planned.
With the holidays coming up, I also purchased this cheese board from Dollarama for just $4. This board looks like high quality wood and will be great for making a tasty charcuterie board when entertaining.
If being eco-conscious is important to you (as it should be), then you should know that Dollarama has ceramic containers with fitted lids.
I was so excited to get my hands on this super cute container because not only would it be great for bringing my lunch to work, but I could also use the container as a bowl if needed.
One thing that I didn’t know about Dollarama is that it has a lot of kitchen items that are smaller in size, which makes it great for shopping for a small space. Normally colanders can be pretty large but this green one that I picked up at Dollarama is smaller.
When not using it as a strainer, you can store fruit or any type of fruits that don’t need to be refrigerated. I love that it also adds a pop of colour to my mostly monochromatic kitchen.
Keeping with the pop of colour, I snatched up these fun oven mitts and tall pink bottle that can be used in a variety of ways. I love it as a vase, but it can also be used for salad dressings, too!
Being someone who cooks a lot, I’m always looking for ways to stay as organized and tidy as possible while I’m cooking and prepping meals. Small bowls are super useful to put chopped ingredients into to keep your workspace mess-free.
I love these small bowls that I found at Dollarama and they can be used in a million different ways, not just for prepping.
For any bakers out there, Dollarama has you covered with this cute cake stand. While it’s not the highest of qualities, it definitely does the trick, and I actually like that it’s made of metal because it’s super light if you have to take it anywhere. The best part is that it costs only $4!
All in all, I’d say this was a pretty successful shopping haul at Dollarama. My kitchen certainly looks like its in much better shape, and I did it all for just $50!
